State Game Warden Baker
Baker has just Handed in
His Annual Report to
the Governor and from
which We Quote the
Following. j
"It has ben said that the benefit J
derived in a day s sport in the tela
with a gun, or in the mountains, on
some trout stream with a fishing
rod. to a tired and wornout in-door,
worker, is something that cannot
be estimated in figures or expressed I
in words. J
Physical exertise and an entire
forgetfulness of daily worry and
business cares bring their reward in
the return of health, ard there ia so
incentive in this direction that can
begin to take the place of the pur
suit 01 fish or game. Any one who
has ever hooked a fifteen or twenty
inch trout or used an artificial fly,
can fully realize; what total forget
fulness of busy cares mean; from
the moment the strike ia made, tha
circulation chickens and all thought
of the outside world, with all it
cares, and with all its troubles and
with all it ups and downs was for
gotten until the fish was landed.
How in anticipation, of a strike,
every cast of the fly took his whole
attentien. No one can forget the
flushing of the China Pheasant, the
Oregon Ouail, or the Grouse, how
in utter and absolute forgetfulufcua
ol everything ele beside, he took
the so much needed and continu
ous tramp in pursuit of the deer,
eagerly scanning with the closest
scrutiny, each and every nook and
corner, earnestly hoping and expect
ing to aee a fine buck spring from
his place of concealment, and how
after the noble animal is brought
down by his unerring rifle, he
views the maguificent trophy, he
oan without dreaming of business
cares rest in peaceful quiet during
the night."
Rapid increase in population ac
companied by great improvements
in line arms and greatly deciaed
costs of guns and ammunition, has
resulted in the enormous increase of
persons who hunt. Several s-tates
now require both resident and non
resident hunters to secure a hunters
license before hunting. The le
poits of 1OO3 show that in ten

I her of hunters licensed was 2''l,24l,
I the largest number in any one of
, states was Illinois with a total of
0A250 and Michigan with 7H.82-'),
j these figures are Hill below the ac
tual numbers of hunters, as it is not
unlikely that every hunter did not
obtain a license.
The last session of the Oregon
Legislature passed a law requiring
each resident hunter to pay one dol
lar for hunting license, and each
non-resident ten dollars. This sys
tem has up to this date placed in
the game fund $17,421 which i to
be used onlv for the hire of deputy
game wardens. It has and will af
ford greater protection to Oregon
game than ever before.
Recent years have witnessed a
great change in regard to game
laws and their enforcement. The
idea formerly prevailed that game
belonged absolutely to the person
who killed or captured it; but thut
is fast giving way to the principle
that it belongs to the state and may
be captured and held in possession
only unoer bhcii conditions as me
atate permits. Recognition of tbia
principle which has been incorpo
rated in the laws of most of the
states, is now becoming general
and is necessary for a clear under
standing of the complexities of mod
ern game legislation, and game
It should not be assumed how
ever, that because the atate owns all
the game and fixes the season and
the methods of its capture, that the
farmers rights have been ignored,
on the contrary he Btill practically
controls the game on hia premises,
as well as being permitted to hunt
therein without securing a license,
and he can to a certain extent
name the conditions under which
the game may be taken, and has
the absolute right to say whether
or not 11 sUali bo
Violations of the game-laws are
less tbia year than in years past. In
some cases deputy district attorneys
will not prosecute case, when the
evidence is very strong. Justice of
the Peace are generally disposed to
enforce the law, but show a dispo
sition to fine violators small fines.
There have been $3 arrests and
conviclions eince the law has been
in effect since 19o5.

Seventy-eight permits for ship
